Blue Pacific Flavors, Tanzanian Vanilla, Kilimanjaro Vanilla

Tanzanian vanilla and African rhino conservation

The connection between rhinos and vanilla may seem like a stretch at first.  But for the people who grow and craft Kilimanjaro Vanilla, rhinos are an icon of the Tanzanian culture and landscape. We wanted our Tanzanian vanilla to play a role in sustaining not just the Tanzanian economy, but the futures of African wildlife as well.


Kilimanjaro Vanilla’s partnership with the AWF

Our Kilimanjaro Vanilla is grown, processed, and extracted in Tanzania. Here, the African wildlife is becoming increasingly threatened by poaching and loss of habitat. That’s why we decided to make wildlife conservation a major part of the Kilimanjaro Vanilla story. Blue Pacific Flavors is committed to donating 3% of net sales of Kilimanjaro Vanilla to the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF). With your purchase of this product, together we can support AWF’s mission to ensure the continent’s wildlife and wild lands thrive in a modern Africa.

Learn more about the African rhino

There are two types of African rhinoceros: the white rhino and the black rhino. These prehistoric looking mammals with their massive horns may look like aggressive predators, but they are actually herbivores. Unfortunately, the horns that they use to protect themselves have made rhinos a target for poachers, who illegally sell their horns for use as ornaments and in traditional medicine. In just 60 years, the black rhino population has dropped by 97.6%! AWF plays a crucial role in preventing poaching, protecting habitats, and creating sustainable livelihood sources for local communities – ensuring rhinos remain in Africa for generations to come. 

You can learn more about rhinos and how AWF is monitoring the health and safety of this endangered animal on their rhinocerus conservation page.
